INPSITE (Psychical Research Database)

This computer catalog of the holdings of the American Society for Psychical Research is maintained in Inmagic, a software package designed for libraries and information centers. The software assists with serials control and circulation, and also connects with other computer systems. INPSITE contains records of book and journal collections, the pamphlet file, and the society's archives. Initially INPSITE emphasized items that did not appear in the existing card catalogwhich closed in early 1987 with some 600 books and many pamphlets not yet catalogedbut as INPSITE expands, it hopes to provide access to the complete card catalog. Address: American Society for Psychical Research, 5 W. 73rd St., New York, NY 10023.
